Maruti Suzuki’s Ertiga gets a new 1.5L diesel engine, priced Rs. 9.86 lakh

Maruti Suzuki India introduced powerful 1.5-litre DDIS 225 Diesel Engine with 6-speed manual transmission in the Next Gen Ertiga. The latest 1.5 Litre DDIS 225 4-cylinder diesel engine is developed in-house to deliver enhanced performance. Prices of the Maruti Ertiga 1.5L diesel start at INR 9.86 lakh*.

The new DDIS 225 engine delivers a peak torque of 225Nm @1500-2500rpm, maximum power of 70kW@ 4000rpm and a fuel efficiency of 24.20 km/l. The high efficiency turbo charger optimizes peak torque generation from a lower RPM (revolutions per minute).


Along with the all-new diesel engine, Maruti Suzuki has introduced a 6-speed manual transmission in the Ertiga.

The new DDIS 225 engine on Next Gen Ertiga uses ‘Dual Mass flywheel’ that helps to reduce engine fluctuations. The pendulum type engine mounting further adds to superior ride quality leading to refined NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) performance.

The Next Gen Ertiga comes with 6-speed manual transmission mated to the new DDIS 225 diesel engine to bring superior gear shift feel and smooth driving experience.

Sharing his thoughts on Maruti Suzuki’s new offering, Mr. R.S. Kalsi, Senior Executive Director, Marketing and Sales, said, “Considering the requirements of evolving customers, the Next Gen Ertiga is now offered with new 1.5-litre Diesel engine. The new engine is a perfect combination of performance and refinement. It showcases Maruti Suzuki’s commitment to provide products aligned with customers aspirations. We are sure this new engine option will strengthen the popularity of Ertiga in urban MPV segment.”
